perspiration + inspiration

perspiration + inspiration helps turn walking the stairs from exercise of the body into inspiration for the soul by stencilling lyrics and other quotes onto stair handrails.

Story

By using the handrails of public stairs as our canvas and the lyrics, poems and quotes as the art we hope that it will encourage more people to walk and explore their local community and the creativity that surrounds them.

Dunedin is our first pilot city. It is a small university city in New Zealand but is bursting with creative talent (past and present).  Many famous NZ authors, poets and songwriters have or do still live here.  We hope to use a mix of thieir inspiration and that of others who might have studied or visited or are just dreaming of coming to New Zealand sometime in the futre.

We have permission to stencil the public handrails (helps that I used to work within city hall) and are now in the process of choosing the words.  By supporting us you can help us select the words, add your own ideas or even get all the info on how you can undertake a perspiration + inspiration project in your local community.

The 'author' will be acknowledged on each handrail and a map will be produced to inspire people to wander with our words and discover our city through new eyes (and legs!)
